It's Easier to Build a Childs Future rather than Repair an Adult

I am constantly getting asked “why are so many parents taking their children to see a certified pediatric chiropractor?”. I tell them that the answer is quite simple, children have spines and a nervous system just the same as adults do. We want to make sure they are taking good care of it especially during the developmental years. Read More

Is my baby too young to be adjusted?

This is a very common question that I do get asked, especially with newborn babies. The birth process can be very stressful, not only on the mother but the baby also. During the delivery process, sometimes there can be difficulty which can cause injuries to the very upper neck, upper back and shoulder regions of newborns. With some forceps and suction deliveries, this injures and strains the upper neck region in an infant which can cause muscle spasm, sometimes called torticollis and some complications after delivery.

I Don't Believe in Chiropractic

Few times a week, I often hear that… you know “I just don't believe in chiropractic”. My response to the statement is not defensive but engaging and educating in the health conversation. Which, I understand why you may not believe in chiropractic, but it's not about a belief or a religion. Chiropractic is principled in allowing the body to work and function at 100% through a specific chiropractic adjustment. Read More

My Most Difficult and Rewarding Case

People ask me what is has been your most difficult maybe rewarding case recently. Well, a few months ago I had the distinct ability to consult, examine, consult and treat a very tiny little girl and we're going to call her "Miracle". Miracle as I am seeing many times recently, was born addicted to certain chemicals and was struggling not only be healthy, but just survive on a daily basis. Her now adopted mother, who in the most instinctual and loving way, took this little baby and started to care, feed her properly and love her like she's never been loved before. Read More

So what is Colic?

Colic is defined as the inability to comfort a crying young child or baby that exhibits periodic fussiness that can last up to hours or even days. This colic is characterized by a loud piercing cry, tightened or tensed stomach muscles, flexed legs and clenched fingers with the inability to try to calm down. In general it starts about three weeks of age and can last up to three months but even as long as six months. Colic affects approximately 10- 20% of newborns. While the research reports there is no one specific cause and with that in mind, makes it very difficult to treat a colicky baby. Other suggestions include that while you're breast-feeding, you sure don't want to consume foods that give you gas or indigestion like broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, onions and even spicy foods. it may be even as simple as an food allergy to the type of baby formula that you're feeding your newborn.

So how is it that my Arm Pain and Numbness in my Hands is coming from my Neck?

So how is it that my arm pain and numbness in my hands is coming from my neck? So the answer to that is quite simple, while there can be other reasons that may be more serious causing your arm pain. Typically what I find after a examination, consultation and x-rays that many times it is originating from the neck region. There is a series of nerves that come out of your neck called the brachial plexus, they form a network of nerves that innervate the shoulder, arm, forearm and hands. Read More

What is the BBC?

What is the BBC? Well, there's two meanings actually… the BBC does mean the British Broadcasting company of London, but as a pertains to your health, it is the Brain Body Connection. I truly believe that this is one the most important concepts that you can understand from a chiropractic standpoint. And the reason for that is that the brain is connected to the body at the skull and very upper neck which is what we call the Upper Cervical or atlas/axis region. Read More

Chiropractic care for All Ages and Stages of Life

One of the most inaccurate assumptions people make about chiropractic is that it is for any certain age or condition. The truth is that chiropractic care is useful and effective for people of ALL ages and stages of life, no one is too old or too young to get an adjustment. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body’s nervous system. When there is interference in the nervous system, it can cause dysfunction in the body and all of its different moving parts. This dysfunction occurs when the spine is out of alignment, which puts pressure on the nervous system. This is called a “subluxation” or misalignment. These subluxations will not only affect the way the body functions, but can also cause pain due to pinched, irritated, and compressed nerves. Read More

Chiropractic Care for All Ages

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body's nervous system. When your nervous system is optimized and functioning properly, it enables the body's powerful healing and restorative systems to thrive. Interference in your nervous system causes pain and dysfunction in the way your body works. This interference is known as subluxation or misalignment. Muscles, bones and joints may become injured and misaligned resulting in nerves being irritated, pinched, or compressed, causing interference in the nervous system. This can lead to a variety of symptoms including pain. Thru chiropractic adjustments, we remove spinal misalignments and restore the function of the nervous system and allow the innate or natural healing mechanisms of the human body to take over. Chiropractic care is useful and effective for people of all ages and stages of life. Read More
